Call for revolution

When thousands starve and die of disease
no answer, no solution call for revolution

when poverty is on your doorstep
and you don’t know what to do

no answer, no solution call for revolution
when bombs are dropped on the innocent

no answer, no solution call for revolution
when your government makes decisions you hate

no answer, no solution call for revolution

when survival of the fittest favours the pitiless
no answer, no solution call for revolution

when evolution is a definition in your textbook
when love is just a word without meaning

when you sleep you dream of being free
but God doesn’t hear your plea

No answer, no solution call for revolution!

Dan Hooks

Hi there my name is Dan Hooks and I am a poet.

My poetry has many diverse themes from madness to the mundane, from fantasy and fable to philosophical and the darkness of reality (whatever that is).

I have been writing since I was 18 and have inspired other artists such as Benjamin Heine who created an piece of art work called”filled with fire” from my poem called “Freedom”. That poem was inspired from a quote from Nelson Mandela saying “we are free to be free”. Writing I find is a collaborative process.

I have also written other poems which have been used in language courses in America, Canada and Australia. One of which is called “poem on identity” and the other one is “Antithesis”.

I have a soundcloud account in which I post poems to music and my spoken word pieces. I find spreading my work on various social media platforms really useful for presenting my work.

I am also fond of travelling and have climbed Mount Fuji in Japan visited Finland skied in both USA in keystone Colorado and Whistler in Canada. I find perspective can be found in travelling to other countries and it also helps you appreciate other cultures as well your own.
